    Reset local account password.


    I want to login with my microsoft account on a laptop. But I can´t since I need to know my dead stepfathers local account password. I know the pin number. Tried for hours to get in contact with microsoft support. But it is impossible to reach a human.

    :)

    Reset local account password on Windows 10

    Technical Level : Basic

    Summary

    Describes the steps to reset you local account password on Windows 10

    Details

    A
    Microsoft account
    is a single set of sign-in credentials (email address and password) that provides user access to PCs running Windows and connected services
    from Office to Outlook to Skype. If you lose or forgot your
    Microsoft account
    password, you can recover it from any other device with access to the internet: follow these steps.

    A local computer account is an account that is created for a particular device.



    If you don’t have a Microsoft account, forgot your local computer account password, and do not have access to a local administrator account for your computer to reset your password,
    you can’t recover it. Instead, you’ll need to reset your PC

    Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

    • Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.
    • While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.
    • On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.
    • Your PC will restart and will reset itself.
